Create a system image in Windows 10 on your network

Now that you have Windows 10 exactly how you want it, you need to preserve an image of your computer.  You can do this across your network which will take some time.  You can also save the image locally on DVDs or an external hard drive.

First, go to the Control Panel and click on Backup and Restore (Windows 7).

Next click on Create a system image


You can create an image on a secondary hard drive or an external hard drive.   In this scenario, we are going to select a network location.  On the network computer we have setup a user and shared the folder with the user.


(Above) – In this scenario, our UNC path is \\server\image\


You must have a separate folder for each image you wish to backup.


Once you start the backup, it will take some time depending on your network speed.


On the computer hosting the image, you will find the Windows Image Backup.  Save these files and update accordingly.   In the event your computer crashes, you should also have a Windows System Repair Disc to restore the backup.
